did
not intend the public
should know of our plans
till after the 4th of March.
Yesterday, however, two
morning papers announced
that Mr Seward having
sold his interest in the
Journal t was to leave
Albany in a few days.
Last evening a gentleman
came to ask the refusal
of our house.
The Servants know
nothing of it yet. I shall
tell them next week.
I think you would

like Margaret
Birth: 1835
& shall
urge her to go to you.
But I doubt if she
would leave the City.
Her mother

, four sisters

,
& two brothers

live
here.
I wish you would
come down if only for
a few days. I want so
much to talk to you.
In the mean time do
not fear you will trouble
me with letters.
We go today to Meadow-
brook to tell the folks
there, y who know nothing
about our leaving.
